Meanwhile, on the other side of the Pacific

The CCP tries to pin the melamine fiasco on dairy farmers.

I'd love to see a political party try to get away with that over here.

Didn't a Liebral tell Saskatchewan farmers that if they wanted action, vote for him. If memory serves, they didn't. Can't imagine why.

Grass in, milk out. How in hell would farmers get melamine into the milk? If it came from enhanced feeds, it's still not caused by farmers. Only in a country with state controlled media would a story like this surface.

The only reason melamine would be in milk was if someone was trying to fake the protein levels. Melamine will increase nitrogen levels making the protein level appear higher than it really is. You then can water the milk down. Stuff like this is relatively easy to do if proper QA testing is not done. Several years ago a couple of Austrian wineries were caught adding glycol to their wine because it wasn't sweet enough. Vigorous EU testing standards caught them.
